Easily Switch Between Modded Minecraft and Vanilla

MultiMC seems to be the way to go if you want to play different versions of Minecraft easily.

More details and the download here

What is MultiMC?
MultiMC is a tool / custom launcher that makes managing Minecraft much easier by allowing you to have multiple installations of Minecraft at once. This means that you can have two different .minecraft folders each with it's own mods saves texture packs, etc. It also allows you to easily install and remove mods without you even having to touch WinRAR or 7zip at all. In addition, when Minecraft crashes, MultiMC tries to recognize the error message and explain what happened and how to fix the problem.

If you already maintain multiple .minecraft directories you can "import" them into MultiMC very easily from a menu item.

If you only have one you can create new instances directly from the tool.  Make sure to specify which Minecraft version the instance is supposed to use - Don's page will tell you - because it will automatically download the version it thinks you're supposed to have unless the version matches.  In the case where a modded JAR is used that is bad news indeed.

MultiMC creates entire directory structures with all files including config and mods etc so each instance is entirely self-contained.  That is in contrast to, say, Magic Launcher, which only manages specific directories it knows about.  You can update mods and settings directly within the instance directory (at the same level as MultiMC.exe) if you want or you can use the tool to configure mods.

MultiMC is definitely the right answer.  I'm sure either Don or myself will be able to post a step-by-step on configuring instances at some point.
